Eden Mills plays host to a number of events throughout the year. Our volunteers put together a local concert series every year with music and entertainment at the Community Hall.
The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival takes place in September every year and plays host to celebrated authors who perform readings of their own work in the natural setting of the Village. People come from all over to hear the readings, eat local food, purchase books, and browse through the exhibits that line our main street.
The Eden Mills Arts Festival is also a highlight of our year and generally features the work of about 20 local artists and craftspeople. Visit the Welcome Centre at the Community Hall in Eden Mills and see some examples of artists’ work, get directions to the various artists’ studios, and enjoy a bite in our cafe.
Jazz in the Barn

Canadian Jazz Legends of the Highest Order

Featuring jazz musicians who, like Peter, are recipients of the Order of Canada, the concert will raise funds for Eden Mills It Takes a Village.
